Hip-hop took center stage at Lake Forest College on Feb. 22 during the start of the college’s first Hip-Hop Week.
The week’s events originated while brainstorming at a meeting of the Office of Intercultural Relations, said Adam Lopez, program coordinator.
“Hip-hop is huge around the world,” Lopez said. “It’s in different languages, cultures and nations. We think it’s going to be a really good, engaging event for students.”
Lake Forest brought in break dancers, a DJ and an alum to both MC and perform. A slide show of hip-hop art work was also featured.
The week’s events included a session on hip-hop and the media and an open mic night.
